Osama bin Laden is warning that al-Qaida could retaliate against Europe for its alliance with the United States in the war in Afghanistan. Bin laden says in a new audiotape posted on Islamic Web sites Friday that Europe should pull out of the coalition with the United States, warning that it shares blame for NATO airstrikes in Afghanistan that have killed civilians.

Addressing Europeans, he asks, "how do think you will fare after America pulls out - Allah permitting - for us to retaliate from the oppressor on behalf of the oppressed?"
